Fishing is just a mirror of last week even though river conditions have changed. Due to the flooding along the Yellowstone River flows on the Bighorn were decreased to 6000 cfs last week. Water temps remain at 43 degrees. Water clarity is at least 6-8 feet to Soap Creek and then muddies up after that. Stay river left after Soap Creek and you will continue to have good fishing down to Bighorn Access. After Bighorn Access clarity gets much worse. Streamer fishing has been exceptionally good as small emerald shiners are being washed over the spillway from the reservoir. Best streamer patterns have been White/Pearl Zonkers, Sherick’s Hatchery Smolt, and Foxy Fry (all in size 6). We are still seeing good Baetis hatches on cloudy days with some midges present. For the best opportunities look for areas of slower water. For the midge hatch use a Hi-Vis Griffith’s Gnat (14-16) trailed with a gray, black or red Smokejumper (16-18). For Baetis use a Blue Winged Olive Parachute trailed by a Black Baetis Emerger (16-18). Subsurface use an orange or red Wire Worm (4-6) trailed by a beadhead black or red Midge Larvae (both in 16-18).
